Have systems like the Ronin and MoVi killed Steadicam?
Steadicam owner operators used to be highly sought-after. Their experience, ability, and equipment provided unparalleled camera movement and freedom. Now anyone can rent a Ronin or a MoVi and produce similar footage, with even fewer restrictions (like the ability to do a hand-off, low shots, or jib-style movements). Is there still any benefit to owning and operating a Steadicam these days?
